Decision:

RESOLVED that Cabinet:-

(b)          approved the progression of detailed design and stakeholder engagement for the Wallisdown Road scheme in line with the key project aims identified and General Arrangement drawing included in Appendix A of the report.

Voting: Unanimous

Portfolio Holder: Transport and Infrastructure

Reasons

1.      To add the funding allocation to the 2020/21 LTP Capital Programme and enable its full utilisation within the DLEP Growth Deal funding period (before 31 March 2021).

2.      Addition of £502,500 to the Blackwater West Junction scheme as a result of reallocating DLEP funding across BIG Programme schemes enables the recrediting of already committed local funding contributions, which will result in greater flexibility of spend (local contributions to the BIG programme can be spent beyond the DLEP funding deadline of 31 March 2021).

3.      To enable the development and progression of the FWP: Wallisdown Road based scheme within the required timescales.
